What you need to know about Botox treatments in Agoura Hills before you schedule an appointment.
Everyone has a reason for making their first appointment at Illuminari MedSpa. Most often it’s because they want to remove the fine wrinkles from around their eyes or mouth. To restore or maintain that smooth appearance, the most common step is Botox injections. Botox in Agoura Hills is common and considered safe by the FDA.
What is Botox?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only FDA-approved treatment that temporarily smooths out frown lines and eye wrinkles. It works by disrupting the signals between the neurons near the injection site. In essence, it relaxes and ‘freezes’ the muscles so that they don’t pucker the skin.
According to BOTOX®, Botox Cosmetic targets the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. These muscle contractions are the underlying causes of the frown lines and crow’s feet people often want to overcome. These dynamic wrinkles can give the appearance of being constantly tired, distressed or even angry.
Large numbers of people receive Botox in Agoura Hills every year. According to Medical News Today, more than 6 million Botox treatments are administered each year across the United States. In fact, Botox injections are the most popular MedSpa procedure in America.

What Causes Wrinkles?
Most people see their first wrinkles appear around the eyes and mouth. Wrinkles may result from a combination of many factors. It’s not only a result of cellular changes over time, but a reduction in collagen production and/or sun damage are also key influencers.
Wrinkles can be caused by a number of factors.
- Habitual facial expressions
- Sun damage
- Poor hydration
Natural, repeated movement of the face can cause the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. The same effect happens when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and will cause crow’s feet over time.
Types of Facial Lines
There are two different types of facial lines, static and dynamic facial lines. Static facial lines are visible all the time and are a result of squinting, frowning, or sun damage. Dynamic lines are a result of activating underlying facial muscles. These lines are only visible during muscle contractions like squinting or smiling.
According to the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, crow’s feet are the fine lines that form around the eyes. They are primarily caused by sun exposure, but smoking can also cause them to appear.
Botox for Medical Use
According to Medical News Today, Botox has proven useful in treating a variety of medical conditions including eye squints, migraines, excess sweating and leaky bladders. Many people find it effective in the treatment of migraines.
The FDA originally approved the use of Botox and Botulinum Toxin in 1989 for the treatment of eye muscle problems. In 2002, the FDA approved Botox treatments for cosmetic purposes for people between the ages of 18 to 65.
